NFL teams are finally making their way to training camp and beginning the long journey that is the 2018 season. Along the way, though, they’ll be sure to have some fun — training camp always features some time for relaxation and team bonding.
The Cleveland Browns seem to have a head start on everyone in that department with a hilarious spoof of the iconic intro to “The Office.”
Tyrod Taylor is the office manager; Jarvis Landry is the receptionist
The remake has a strong start. Tyrod Taylor, projected to be the team’s starting quarterback, plays the role of office manager, giving out directions. He even has the “World’s Best Boss” mug, which Steve Carell’s character Michael used throughout “The Office.” Austin Corbett, a rookie offensive lineman, plays the role of newbie perfectly, struggling with the coffee. And Jarvis Landry — he of 112 catches last year — is the aptly named receptionist.
Then you have Britton Colquitt, the team’s punter, flicking a paper football at tight end David Njoku. Njoku, who caught four touchdowns last year, then jump-spikes it. Offensive lineman Joel Bitonio answers a phone, and Christian Kirksey perfectly replicates the hilarious Jello prank.
But the real highlights come over the second portion of the video …
Emmanuel Ogbah copies a football; Myles Garrett shreds Ben Roethlisbeger
These clips speak for themselves:
Then, after Joe Schobert types out “Joe’s Thoughts” and Duke Johnson shoves a fellow “employee,” Myles Garrett, last year’s No. 1 overall pick, appears:
Garrett posted seven sacks in just 11 games his rookie year, but he didn’t get to Roethlisberger. He’ll be hoping to change that this coming season.
The Browns are the subject of ‘Hard Knocks’
This isn’t the only time fans can get up close and personal with the Browns: The team is also going to be featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks. Training camp begins July 25 in Berea, Ohio.
Cleveland went 0-16 last season, but we’ll chalk this video up as a major win to start 2018.
